Triangle 0-0 Chicken Inn
A 10-man Triangle failed to utilise on home advantage after they were held to a goalless draw by Chicken Inn in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Gibbo Stadium yesterday.
Both teams created few chances although the home side had an upperhand in the opening half.
Referee Tinashe Marange sent off Triangle captain Richard Kawondera for a second bookable offence deep inside the optional time.
Marange could have awarded the home side a last minute penalty after Kawondera was hacked down inside the opposition box but he thought the contact was not enough to bring down the midfielder who was instead booked for simulation.
Triangle head coach Taurai Mangwiro applauded his side for putting up a good defensive display after their second clean sheet of the season but was not happy with the referee’s decision.
“It’s so sad that we always play like an away side, the kind of decisions are so pathetic but if the match officials see simulation in that then well done to the match officials.’
Caps United 3-3 TelOne
WANT-AWAY Caps United coach Lloyd Chitembwe was conspicuous by his absence yesterday when the Harare giants were made to work overtime for a point in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match against newboys TelOne at the National Sports Stadium.
Chitembwe, who won the championship with the side in 2016, reportedly quit Makepekepe in a huff during the midweek after clashing with one of the club’s directors over team selection.
The Green Machine needed goals from John Zhuwawu, Gabriel Nyoni and Newman Sianchali to tame the inspired Wi-Fi Boys in this see-saw affair, which could have seen more goals had both teams been precise in front of goal.
Elasto Chigora, exciting winger Emmanuel Mandiranga and Blessing Sibanda scored for the visitors in this six-goal thriller. Chronicle
